    so now i'm wondering what will happen at moschino...if vincent darre has left...because it has been looking extraordinariy good for some season now...i hope it continues to thrive without him...
    seems like a good choice though...

    interesting all the new names that are coming to the forefront these days after having been in the background for some time...a bit of a changing of the guard happening these days...keep it coming i say...

    The last collection I liked of Ungaro was F/W RTW 2001. It was so French and so classy! It was awesome. Hopefully this guy will do much better than Valli.

    Ferragamo Sells Ungaro

    Ferragamo Sells Ungaro
    By Alessandra Ilari and Miles Socha

    PARIS — Another French fashion house has come under American ownership.
    Emanuel Ungaro said Thursday that Gruppo Ferragamo signed an agreement to sell 100 percent of the company to San Francisco-based high-tech entrepreneur Asim Abdullah.
    Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Abdullah, while new to the fashion industry, plans to swiftly put his imprint on a brand synonymous with feminine opulence and the color fuchsia. Ungaro president and chief executive officer Paolo Di Spirt, who will continue in his role, said Abdullah is prepared to invest in the company and even relaunch the couture, possibly with a new designer.....:woot:
    The level of debt is believed to be in the range of $25 million.
    Salvatore Ferragamo bought Ungaro in 1996 when the brand, especially the Emanuel/Emanuel Ungaro bridge collection, was riding high. In 1997, designer Giambattista Valli was hired to work aside the couturier. He was named creative director in 1998 and took the reins from Ungaro in 2001.
    Although Valli ultimately became a darling of the press, the road to rejuvenation has not been an easy one for the house. In 2003, Di Spirt was named ceo with an intent to relaunch the brand and focus on its core women's and men's ready-to-wear and accessories businesses, while also identifying strategic partners for production, distribution and licensing. Di Spirt replaced Valli with Moschino alum Vincent Darré, who has presented two rtw collections for the house.
    Di Spirt said on Thursday that the house would stage its next rtw show in March, but not necessarily with Darré. "Obviously, we've had hiccups," Di Spirt said, referring to poor reviews for Darré's debut collection. "We are looking at possible candidates and alternatives. We hope to work very much on the product."
